Swan gliding over a fairytale-like river landscape

In march 2016, I went for a walk along the Aar river in Switzerland. The yellow spring light provided a special atmosphere. I spotted two swans flying high in the sky. Minutes later, one of them returned. It was flying towards me, just above the ground.
